ABC unveils construction jobs proposal

Associated Builders and Contractors on Tuesday unveiled its 2010 Job Creation Proposal, a package of recommendations that will help to stimulate the construction industry and put Americans back to work.

In its proposal, ABC recommends eliminating uncertainty in the business environment by calling on Congress and the administration to focus on free-enterprise initiatives and open competition instead of anti-business legislative and regulatory proposals; increasing access to capital for new construction projects and viable, low-risk projects/contracts that simply need funding in order for work to commence; providing meaningful tax relief and reducing the tax burden on hard-working Americans and small businesses; enacting a national comprehensive energy plan that includes new construction and upgrades to the nation’s insufficient and crumbling infrastructure; allowing the entire construction industry workforce to participate on federally funded or federally assisted projects; and supporting construction training programs that will attract new skilled workers.
